- Attic Insulation
Summer is here, which means being prepared for excessive heat and what that means for yourself and your HVAC equipment.
Here’s your guide to Summer Heat Advisories and some steps to keep you cool!
- Avoid the Heat: Stay indoors as much as possible and reschedule strenuous outdoor activities to early in the morning or evening
- Wear Appropriate Attire: Loose-fitting and lightweight clothing
- Stay Hydrated: Drink plenty of fluids, even when you don’t feel thirsty
- Know the Symptoms of Heat Disorders: Sunburn, Heat Cramps, Heat Exhaustion, & Heat Stroke
When the heat index is expected to be over 100, your air conditioner may be doing everything it can to cool your house. For best performance, we recommend taking the following actions:
- Make sure your air filter is clean
- Use ceiling fans to help cool rooms
- Keep blinds and curtains closed when possible
Don’t expect your a/c to cool your house below 76 / 77 degrees during the heat of the day. It won’t be able to achieve those temperatures in this South Florida weather.
One tip to check if your air conditioner is running properly is to test it at night. After the heat of the day is over and the sun has gone down, check your thermostat settings and watch the equipment overnight. Is it able to achieve the temperatures you set it for? Does it cycle off and seem to run okay overnight? In the morning hours before the heat of the day does it reach the temperatures you have it set for?
If you answer yes to these questions, then mechanically the equipment is probably okay. During the daytime it may not be able to keep up with the demand of the South Florida temperatures. Or there may be other factors to consider in your home, such as old or damaged duct work, low or missing attic insulation or old windows & doors.
If you are still unsure if your air conditioner is working, please contact us to schedule an appointment.
To Our Valued Customers,
Keeping you and our Team safe is a top priority, so we wanted to share an update on the steps we are taking in response to coronavirus. With information from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), we have put in place preventative measures to maintain a clean, healthy environment for our Team and customers.
Good health and safety are not new concepts at Air On Demand, but with the heightened threat of COVID-19, here are some of the precautions we are taking:
- Social Distancing: We are limiting the number of appointments per day to allow our technicians time to clean and sanitize in between each home visit.
- We are limiting the number of people in company vehicles, allowing only one person per vehicle.
- Protection: We are advising our Team members to wear gloves; face masks and protective shoe covers during in home appointments.
- All employees have been provided with gloves, face masks, shoe covers, hand sanitizer and cleaner.
- Our Team members are required to clean and sanitize their tools and trucks each day.
- We have instructed our Team members to monitor their own health and should they show any symptoms of COVID-19 they are not to report to work and seek medical attention.
We are also practicing social distancing within our offices and have staff members on different shifts or working remotely, therefore our response times may not be as smooth as we would like. We ask that you please be patient with us while we try to take the best care of our Team members and customers during this time.
While we are taking steps to ensure the safety or our Team, we are also asking customers to do their part. If you fear you have been exposed to COVID-19 and have an upcoming appointment, please let us know. You may reach us at our office 305-259-5669 or email at email@example.com.
